I've noticed that in the latest snes9x release (1.53), the readme and license .txt files are not in DOS/Windows text format, but in Unix format. As a consequence, when they are opened in Notepad -- which is the default Windows behaviour for opening .txt files -- the newlines are garbled:

Having them in DOS/Windows format would no doubt make the Windows build more {noob,user}-friendly :D

Thanks, I didn't even notice since my default text editor reads both. I'll try to remember it for the next release ;)

in the interim, can't you use WordPad to open it? That's what I always do when I get garbage characters in a text file when Notepad won't work...

If you don't like Wordpad (like me), check out Notepad++ or PSPad. (I like PSPad better, personally.)
